Do you need a family law attorney in Schaumburg?

Let’s meet in Schaumburg, in the evening, on weekends . . . whenever. Dealing with your Schaumburg divorce attorney should not be the most difficult part of your divorce.

One of the major hurdles people have in preparing to file for divorce in Illinois is actually meeting with their lawyers, and determining a way to conduct an ongoing relationship. Many times, this problem is exacerbated by a client’s desire to keep plans for a divorce secret – until the other spouse is actually served with divorce papers. Even after words, it can be necessary to meet.

Even after an initial consultation, meetings may be required for the following reasons:

  1. Evidence review: Your lawyer may want to discuss evidence with you.
  2. Deposition preparation: You might be deposed in the course of your divorce. A deposition is when the other party’s lawyer can ask you questions, you have to answer; depositions can be transcribed, or video-taped.
  3. Testimony preparation: If you are going to have a hearing or trial, it could be useful to meet to prepare.

Meeting your family law attorney is person might not always be necessary. I find that often teleconferences and video-conferences can do the job quite well in many instances. When looking for an lawyer, it can be useful to think about factors other than geographic location – so you might want to read my post entitled “Who’s the Best Divorce Attorney in Chicago?
